The Pulse is changing Jacksonville by demonstrating the saving love of Jesus Christ to Jacksonville’s disadvantaged and at-risk youth through spiritual, educational, cultural and recreational opportunities.

  • The Philosophy- “They don’t really care what you know…until they know you really care”..

  • The Goal- To keep kids in school and out of trouble, and help them reach their full potential .

  • Our Programs- Build trust and friendship through: meeting needs, personal interaction, and fun activities.

At The Pulse, we want to give at-risk youth a sense of self-worth, build their self-confidence, instill strong morals, teach self-discipline, and give them hope for their future through biblical principles.

  • If you have a pulse, you have a purpose

God has given us two hands, one to receive with and the other to give with.

-Billy Graham

A man is ethical only when life, as such, is sacred to him, that of plants and animals as that of his fellow men, and when he devotes himself helpfully to all life that is in need of help.

-Albert Schweitzer

What does love look like? It has the hands to help others. It has the feet to hasten to the poor and needy. It has eyes to see misery and want. It has the ears to hear the sighs and sorrows of men. That is what love looks like.



The Pulse offers weekly age-appropriate programs. The Bible-based lessons encourage morals, teach life principles and good citizenship. A complete dinner is always included


The Pulse strives to help by offering tutoring in all subjects, stressing reading proficiency and providing help these young people need to improve their grades


Pulse field trips get kids out of their neighborhood and into parks, museums and events that expose them to new areas of life. They learn and grow and find inspiration in places
